Kelly Dodd Shades Lala Kent’s Appearance In Now-Deleted Instagram Post

Here we go again — Kelly Dodd, a recently (and finally) fired cast member of the Real Housewives of Orange County, is at it again. This woman truly can’t stop herself from shutting up and not saying and doing the most offensive things she can possibly think of. I guess that’s what happens when you find yourself with a massive following and wayyy too much time on your hands.

Kelly’s fall from grace from RHOC has been anything but graceful. But what did you expect from a woman who seemingly is incapable of feeling empathy for other people or taking accountability for her actions? Thankfully, Heather Dubrow is coming back to save the sinking ship of a show, that people boycotted because of Kelly’s vile actions. And thankfully, Bravo fully attempted to fix its mistakes by firing Braunwyn Windham-Burke too.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke Real Housewives Of Orange County

The Real Housewives of Orange County is back to filming Season 16 with a totally revamped cast. Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas got pink-slipped after the blunder that was last season. Most fans, myself included, were overjoyed that toxic Kelly and Fraudwyn were fired, because they were truly both insufferable. Now we’re left with Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Shannon Beador with a TRIUMPHANT return from Heather Dubrow. Let’s go girls.

To no surprise, Braunwyn and Kelly have not been happy about getting the boot from RHOC. While Kelly is basking in her delusions, Braunwyn is pointing the finger at everybody. She’s mad Andy Cohen didn’t personally call her to tell her she wouldn’t be offered a contract. She believes it was messed up to fire her during Pride month. And, for some reason, thinks she’s the epitome of what makes good TV.

Shannon & Heather in Ireland

The Real Housewives of Orange County are finally filming Season 16 and rumor has it the drama has already started. Kelly Dodd and Branwyn Windham-Burke are OUT and Heather Dubrow is coming back to save the sinking ship of a show. Even Tamra Judge is hinting at a surprise appearance, bringing it back to the good old days.

And if Fancy Pants and Tammy Sue make an RHOC return, Shannon Beador is DEFINITELY not going to be happy. Shannon and Heather have a lot of history — Shannon’s probably still not over HD banishing her from her home. Or the rumors that the Dubrows were trying to “take the Beadors down,” whatever that was all about. And according to Vicki Gunvalson, Shannon discards her friends like a bowl of rotten lemons once they leave the show. And because of that, her once-close friendship with Tamra has turned super sour.

Noella Bergener Real Housewives of Orange County

Real Housewives of Orange County is currently filming its 16thseason. Sixteen years! Wow, who would have thought? RHOC has been through some major changes over the last few years, but it seems like it’s getting a major shake-up this season.

So far, producers are making the right calls for season 16. They’ve sent Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Elizabeth Lyn Vargas off in a family van and they’re bringing back fancy pants Heather Dubrow. I believe Heather will bring true opulence back to show. But, let’s not get too ahead of things here. The premise of Housewives may revolve around women of means, but it’s littered with women bordering on financial ruin. Take for instance, Noella Bergener, a former friend of Braunwyn and reported season 16 cast member. She’s apparently comin’ in hot with major debt.

Heather Dubrow Addresses Rumors That She Had Kelly Dodd Fired; Says She Wanted To Make Sure Real Housewives Of Orange County Was Going In A “Helpful, Not Harmful” Direction

I still can’t believe that Heather Dubrow will be back for Season 16 of Real Housewives of Orange County. My biggest Bravo wish came true! I can’t wait to see “Fancy Pants” and her $21 million dollar mansion. I’ll bet it has a champagne fountain.

Of course, three RHOC stars were let go from the franchise. Braunwyn Windham-Burke was handed her walking papers after two tumultuous seasons. Elizabeth Lyn Vargas was also fired. Kelly Dodd’s ouster wasn’t really a shock.

Real Housewives of Orange County Elizabeth Lyn Vargas

Erika Jayne is putting on quite the show. Possibly the biggest show of her life. On the latest episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika continued to weave a tall tale about how her life has unraveled. A car crash, dementia, hidden cash. Her story has all the makings of a Lifetime movie. Or a documentary on Hulu.

But as wild as her tales are, she has plenty of people in her corner. As in, all of her castmates. Only Sutton Stracke  seemed a little put off by Erika’s stories. And we know from the midseason trailer that Sutton only gets more suspicious. Now, it looks like Erika has another housewife in her corner.

Braunwyn Windham-Burke

Braunwyn Windham-Burke isn’t coming back to Real Housewives of Orange County, but that doesn’t mean we are rid of her just yet.

I would count Braunwyn as one of those housewives who flamed out pretty fast. Much faster than she expected, I’m sure. As a newbie, she was the constant underdog being kicked by a threatened Vicki Gunvalson. But when she came back for her second season, she was guns blazing with a whole new attitude. Which including throwing drinks in pools when she got really heated. Off camera she was quite the showman as well, being accused of regularly calling the press on herself. She tried hard to work that 15 minutes and when they were up, all that was left was an eviction notice. No amount of press could bring her back for another season and it doesn’t seem like any fans were really upset about it either.

Summer House Hannah Berner

We’re in the dog days of summer, which means the cast of Summer House is back to spending their weekends at the Hamptons, chugging rosé and LoverBoy until the sun comes up. The last season of Summer House was a doozy. The Good Vibes Tribe was stuck together 24/7 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and they were feeling the effects of not having any breaks from one another. On top of that, they had to skip out on their massive ragers and one-night stands, so there was little reprieve.

The most polarizing figure on Summer House last season was undoubtedly Hannah Berner. Her strange relationship with Luke Gulbranson had almost everyone in the cast, aside from Hannah’s partner-in-crime Paige DeSorbo, at odds with her. After a very triggering reunion, Hannah decided to skip out on the Hamptons this year, opting for pursuing her stand-up comedy career or whatever. I bet Kyle Cooke is happy that summer WILL BE FUN again because, in his book, Hannah = not fun.
